Abstract

A biomarker is a variable which is biologically monitored and sometimes studied more as an indication of natural biological mechanisms, pathogenic activities, or therapeutic reactions. Biomarkers are beneficial in the detection and grading of disease seriousness in laboratory as well as clinical settings. The first step in the creation of the biomarker system is to explore a viable target. There are two categories of. biomarkers: biomarkers of exposure for detection of risk, and biomarkers of disease employed in disease progression, diagnosis, and surveillance. The principles of biomarkers in disease have been applied to the detection, screening, diagnosis, treatment and checking of cancer. However, more targeted therapies have now been developed that can be directed to kill cancer cells only, while sparing healthy cells. By understanding the relation amongst the biological processes and clinical outcomes, we can increase, expand, and further elaborate our ways of treatment of diseases by using biomarkers.
